"My right hip was replaced by Dr. Sculco, MD in June of 2003, at HSS. Prior to my hip replacement, I had difficulty walking. I walked with a limp. After the surgery, I went straight home. I never went to a rehab. I did rehab. at home. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain. My right leg was 11/2 inch shorter than the left leg. Dr. Sculco, MD has lengthened my right leg by 11/2 inch. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain whatsoever."
"We have been blessed with four HSS doctors. Two years ago our son had a devastating knee injury that carried a high rate of disability. In addition, he developed something called compartment syndrome, which carried a high rate of amputation. Our home-town surgeon had only seen three such injuries in his entire career. He told us our son would be disabled and faced developing early arthritis. As our son remained in ICU, we were warned of his poor prognosis. Then, a miracle happened."
